Contribute, Staying the Course!
For those of you who love the blog, and either choose not to (or can't) send along a financial contribution there are other ways to support this blog that cost you nothing. Visiting permanent sponsors websites and thanking them for their support, clicking on the changing ads, or coming to a workshop or buying a season pass. And if that isn't your thing a kind email or word of thanks goes a long way. I try to reply and send notes of thanks to as many people as I can. I really do. If you have never received one from me I do apologize. I am working hard to get better at this and make time for it throughout the season.
I have had the donate button on the blog for years, it hides down there below the barnheart graphic. But - as other authors have already stated - this sounds like a charity option. That is not the point. I see these pledges as a way to offer the blogger compensation for a website you enjoy and follow, a contribution toward the effort and expense of the farm.
Thank you, so much.
